Two donors have given Neumann $100,000 gifts to endow scholarships for students. John and Joan Mullen have endowed a scholarship in the name of Sr. Marguerite O’Beirne ’70, OSF, the university’s longtime vice president for mission and ministry, who retired in June of this year. This scholarship will be awarded to a student who demonstrates a commitment to the university’s Catholic Franciscan values and is active in Campus Ministry.
Another $100,000 scholarship gift came from the Society of the Friendly Sons and Daughters of St. Patrick in partnership with the Joseph P. Heenan Family Foundation. This donation will endow the Society of the Friendly Sons and Daughters of St. Patrick, Thomas Edward and Agnes Rita Heenan Memorial Nursing Studies Fund for undergraduate nursing students.
